Converting Dates to Mathematica Format

Hello Everyone,

Is there a simple way to convert dates imported as "Day/Month/Year" to 
the Mathematica format of {Year, Month, Day}?  My dates are one column 
in a matrix of data.  Mathematica appears to be treating them as 
strings.  I used StringReplace to turn 15/10/2004 to 15,10,2004 but it 
remains a string, of course.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.  My alternative is to import 
all of the dates as 20041510 so the ordinal ranking is maintained by 
date calculations would not be possible.

	Greg
